Associate Professor John Tresch is featured in SAS Frontiers for his current work on how mindfulness apps connect—and disconnect—with their Buddhist roots.
Tresch’s article, “Buddhify Your Android,” will appear in the book Persona, étrangement Humain (Persona: Strangely Human), edited by Emmanuel Ģrimaud and Anne-Christine Taylor-Descola. The book accompanies an exhibit with the same name that will run at Paris’ Musée du Quai Branly through November 11. Persona looks at how different cultures understand and create individuals and how different technologies and conceptions of the natural world lead to different ideas of what the self is.
